I tried the darker paint in the top pic and although dh liked it I couldn't stand it. It seemed to suck in all the light and it was driving me nuts so I took paint I already had and mixed it and got this colour. Now I want to paint the entire house in it lol I'm really loving it can't you tell?! The bed, I've had for too many years was painted black about 4 years ago and also seemed to suck the life out of this room so I sanded the footboard wich came out quiet nicely, I think. Then again, anything is better than the way it was. My plan is to upholster the headboard but it has to wait for now because I don't have time to mess with it before Thanksgiving and knowing I have more important things to do (try to put a few more rooms together) is making me put it on the backburner. I'm certain a few of you can relate.
Any way, I had found the mirror about a year ago for $20. I had it in our dining room before we redone it. So, yesterday I enlisted the help of my 11y/o to help (stand on the board so I can cut it) with the frame
Here it is again:) Now it's a place I actually want to be and I'm happy you stoped in to take a look.
